About the Event
The United Strings of Color Duos and Trio will provide music for this opening reception. Curated by Mark Sloan, This is Not: Aldwyth in Retrospect celebrates the life and work of the one-name artist, Aldwyth. Now in her late eighties, the artist surveys the constellation of influences that have brought her this far. Aldwyth has lived and worked in the same octagonal studio/house at the edge of a salt marsh on a small island adjacent to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, since 1980. For more than six decades, she has been producing significant work in relative seclusion from the larger art world. This retrospective takes measure of her entire artistic output from 1953 to present, highlighting the points at which her fascinations have evolved into obsessions. It also traces the connections between her personal biography and the content of her work. This is Not: Aldwyth in Retrospective will be on view in the Adams and Woodson galleries from February 2 to October 7, 2023.
